I really enjoyed this movie.
5 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

I am a big fan of Gale Howard his style of acting reminds me a bit of of James Dean and Marlon Brando. His style is that of the acting studios of the 50's. I would love to see him perform in a stage play.

He has two more DVD's that have not yet been released and i hope he continues to empress in these films as well.

His performance in QAF was awesome.

He should become a big star. His performance in this movie was outstanding!

If you have not yet seen Particles of Truth or Fathers and Sons I would strongly recommend them.
